Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday called up Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal and congratulated him on his thumping victory in Delhi and assured him of all support from the Centre for development of the national capital.
“Spoke to @ArvindKejriwal & congratulated him on the win. Assured him Centre’s complete support in the development of Delhi,” Modi tweeted.
His tweet came as trends showed a massive victory for AAP in Delhi polls in which BJP was decimated.
BJP had emerged as the single largest party in the last Assembly polls in December 2013.
Kejriwal, while thanking Modi for the greetings, said he would like to meet him soon to discuss issues related to Delhi.
He told the Prime Minister that he will need the Centre’s help.
